Since its inception in 2000, Vallum has been a vital and essential voice in contemporary poetry. Our pages regularly feature emerging and established poets and critics, making it a platform that both launches careers and furthers poetic discourse.

But we can’t do it alone.

Magazine sales and subscriptions don’t even begin to cover the costs of production, so we are asking you – our reader, friend, contributor – to make a donation.






Here are just a few of the achievements that your donations helped make possible in 2020:
  • Vallum  facilitators conducted 29 outreach workshops across the Montreal community and beyond, reaching over 208 individuals
  • We released Vallum  issue 17:1 Home and Vallum  issue 17:2 Space,  as well as four Chapbooks as part of our Chapbook Series
  • Vallum was able to connect with its readers through the digital sphere, conducting virtual launches for the magazines and chapbooks, and participating in the 2020 online renditions of Expozine and Word On the Street
  • The poet Judy Barlow won first place in the Vallum  Award for Poetry 2020 for her poem “Walking Into August in East-end Toronto 2020” and Mary Trafford won second place for her poem “Border Crossings”
We will reward your generosity with a charitable tax receipt and a mention on our donor page (if desired). Your contribution makes it possible not only for Vallum to continue publishing but for poetry to continue to flourish far into the future.
